Rabbit meat is leaner than pork or beef, making it ideal for those on weight loss diet looking to reduce their fat intake whilst keeping meat in their diet. Rabbit is referred to as a game meat, which is rich in protein (even more than beef), and a very versatile meat which can be cooked in many ways such as in a stew, casserole or oven baked. With a low fat content, rabbit meat can be an important part of your low fat diet. Rabbit can be packed with flavour, making it an excellent and tasty meat.

Rabbits themselves eat mainly grains, roots and seeds , they are fast and active animals, making their meat very lean.

Replacing your beef intake with rabbit meat, will help you reduce your saturated fat intake, whilst allowing you to enjoy good meat which is full of protein and taste.
